I have a 6.5" 200wrms woofer behind my seat. Goes more then hard enough in this car and I get to keep my boot. However had to put my amps somewhere so this is what I came up with, just waiting for my mate to get enough spare time to put padded vinyl over it.

Lol. Stock Bose with the Axxess iPod Integration kit.

I stopped giving a shit when someone stole all my shit out of my FC a few years ago. I had an Alpine DVD system with a JL 10" and Kenwood Amp. It sounded pretty good.

When I replaced the system, I just popped in a shitty Pioneer CD/MP3 player.

Okay, I guess the term "clean" has changed over the years...
When I was into car audio back in the 90's, the term "clean" implied HIDDEN.
Almost all the pics I've seen in the thread has them boldly displayed in plain view for all to see.
This would not have been classified as "clean" back in the day...

Ted do you remember these subs from "back in the day". These are Godfather M&M Poly Subwoofers. These things came with a lifetime warranty, if you blew them they would fix them. Too bad they went out of business about 15 yrs. ago.



These were going to be my original install (2-15"), until I got the single 18" JL.

Interrestingly enough, back in the day (at least for me), 'clean' stereo meant minimal sound distortion by placing speakers carefully and strategically to properly recreate the sounds that you were trying to recreate. This meant several small tweaters, some larger mid-range speakers and some larger bass (not really a modern subwoofer) speakers in the back. A good amplifier would allow the adjustment of the bass and treble to each channel to get a good 'clean' sound. (Obviously you needed a good antenna too).

Word definitions are very strange.

Nevertheless, I will say that in a lot of those pictures, the installations were tidy-looking.

I will say that I have had too many cars with stolen radios to want to spend money on another stereo system (although I might have to put one in the '91 as it's factory radio has died).
